It's straightforward to get to Prague - since it's such a popular destination! Václav Havel International Airport serves as a hub for Czech Airlines and Smartwings, and is also a base for Ryanair. Prague has very good public transport with buses and a metro.
The metro station Budejovicka is five-minute walk from the school, which makes the city centre super easy to reach. Although central, we are in a very pleasant area with lots of trees and green areas.
There are many restaurants and cafés all within a 10-minute walk from the school, including a food court in a shopping mall or a lovely vegan restaurant called Loving Hut. There are three large supermarkets (e.g. Lidl) all within a 10-minute walk from the school. Additionally, there are a couple of local bakeries and a Marks & Spencer café/shop!
To give you an idea of how expensive it is to live in Prague, a kilo of oranges is around €1.40, a Big Mac is around €3.10 and a bottle of beer is around €1.40.
We have three of our own apartments which students may rent. All three apartments are within a walking distance from the school (or a two-minute bus ride). All of them are in quiet streets and with a garden, so they provide ideal study environment. At the same time, it will only take you about 10 minutes into the city centre or other attractive locations. You will have your own room with a bed, a wardrobe, a desk and a chair. The kitchen and the bathroom are shared and equipped with basic kitchen amenities, including a cooker and a washing machine.
“It was great to stay in the Akcent IH Prague accommodation. Living with other people form the course meant we could help each other with lesson plans in the evenings but we were also able to hang out together socially.” Peter G.
If someone prefers to find their own accommodation (or there is no space left in accommodation the school offers), we are happy to give advice in regard to the location to look for, useful web pages or we recommend places where our trainees stayed in the past and had a positive experience with. In Prague the general cost of more budget accommodation starts at 12 Euro per night (hostels, private accommodation, student-shared places).
